When I first met with Steven, he didn’t think he could foster due to his colourful past. However, we established that often teens can relate to those that have done similar things and come out the other side - they could become a role model for troubled young people to assist them along the right path.
I have seen Steven's confidence grow as he realised this is the case and the training he has received has boosted his abilities too.
